the role of deer as a possible reservoir host of potosi virus, a newly recognized arbovirus in the united states.potosi (pot) virus (bunyaviridae) was isolated from aedes albopictus, an introduced asian mosquito species, collected at a used tire yard in potosi, missouri (usa), in august and september, 1989. in september, 1990, small animals were trapped at the tire yard and six cattle were sampled at an adjacent farm; in november 1990 and 1991, blood samples were collected with filter paper strips from 364 hunter-killed, white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) in the region to determine the possible res ...19968827670
cache valley and potosi viruses (bunyaviridae) in white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus): experimental infections and antibody prevalence in natural populations.cache valley virus (cvv) and potosi virus (potv) are two closely related mosquito-borne viruses (bunyaviridae: bunyamwera group) that appear to circulate in several regions of the united states, especially the midwest. we determined the prevalence of specific neutralizing antibodies to both viruses in indiana white-tailed deer and conducted infection experiments to assess whether deer could serve as an vertebrate-amplifying host. cross-infection experiments also were carried out to investigate t ...19989840585
